    Hi

    Just a quick question, are there any adapters on the market which would allow an FD fitment lens to fit on a 20d?.

    Yup there are.

    Here is one on eBay.

    Canon made them originally when they changed from FD to EOS to allow users to use some of their top FD lenses on EOS cameras. Dont know a thing about the one I linked to just found it on ebay

    Thankyou for your replies.


    I have been informed that the FD adapters will not let you focus to infinity, is this just on digital camera's or film?, I would like to try and get a 600mm mirror lens FD to fit the 20d, are there any problems I could encounter?.

    the SRB adaptor came with a built-in compensating lens to permit focus at infinity but the quality was dreadful. I read somewhere that canon made some Pro-adaptors at the time of the change from FD to EF and these worked well - but are almost impossible to find these days.

    I used my adaptor for macro work so removed the compensating lens.

    (I'm sure you know - you can only work in manual and Av mode with this adaptor)
